The Use of Space Systems to Support the Growth of International Air Transportation 700760

Jumbo jets have entered service, soon to be joined by supersonic transports. Present communications facilities serving over-ocean enroute traffic are already reaching saturation in some areas and a clear need exists to improve the quality, reliability, and capacity of air/ground communications for the traffic of the 1970's. This paper discusses the nature and magnitude of the anticipated air traffic and operational control requirements and alternative concepts involving space systems and major factors related to planning and the implementation of these plans.
